    Once you are afraid of a horse, the relationship is over. At least for me. There are just too many good safe horss out there, and, at least in my case, I am too old and break to easily-plus I am WAY to valuable () to take a chance. Life is too short to not enjoy the ride.

    The horse loves the little girl, she would never do anything to hurt her. She hasn't been worked for a while because my just had a baby and is going to have another on right away. I know it is going to be a long time, okay I get it.

    That's only accurate if you have the ability and knowledge to fix the kinks. Most people do not. I can now see why others are worried that YOU will get someone hurt. Did you not read her post? Jeeze people like this scare me...

    You yourself said the horse is aggressive! Why on earth would you bring a BABY anywhere near it!? You said yourself it bites and kicks! Some people...

    Trust me that horse does not love the child, horses don't love like we do. I hate when people humanize horses. "Oh she loves me, she would never hurt me" then low and behold who gets hurt? Seen it a million times. Its a 1000+ lbs prey animal not a 40lbs puppy dog...

    So true and I am very afraid of him and it's just become a nightmare and I don't enjoy heading to the barn anymore. It doesn't help having people constantly asking if I am going to get on and ride him especially the barn owner as he can ride him with no problems so he thinks it's all in my head.

    I'm sorry, but you need a new trainer. That mentality can (and has) gotten many people injured or worse.

    The original poster has already had a confidence shattering riding accident, they need a horse that is calm and trained to ride until they get their confidence back.

    Look she was like that about 6 months ago. I have done some behavior training on her and she is doing very well. She does it when I am around and of course the dog. When the little girl is around, she is very nice to her. I should of explained at the beginning but I quickly wrote something down. I am not trying to be mean or anything but I want ta at least help people with their horse problems and see if anyone will help me later on too. I may be getting a horse this year so I would like to at least help some people. Don't think I am some rude person telling people what to do. I would never be like that EVER. :(

    Since the horse goes well for the BO, maybe they would help you sell him? Like be the "agent" for a commission? That means they sell the horse for you. They are the ones sowing him, riding him, etc. Might just work, and perhaps you would not lose as much $$. Depends on if they are willing. I totally get where you are coming from. I put mine in training to, but at least with the training the horse and I were awesome at ground work! We could "play" with that all the time, so he stayed fit and was handled. I get it-really I do, and I feel for you. Good luck!

    The other thing I did was ride in a round pen......if you have one, that can help rebuild your confidence. I got that idea from a CA video on rebuilding confidence.
